A bus shelter at the University of East Anglia (UEA) has won an award for its design and craftsmanship.

The low-carbon shelter on University Drive was unveiled last November and has now been recognised by the Norfolk Association of Architects.

The bus stop was built as part of a Norfolk County Council scheme to boost the image of public transport on campus. LSI Architects designed the steel structure with sustainable materials. The shelter has a green roof intended to promote biodiversity and intrigue top deck passengers and several swing seats to entertain waiting passengers.

Dawn Dewar, UEA transport co-ordinator, said: “The bus shelter was a collaborative project with ideas and feedback from bus users, including students, along with creative input from the architects.

“This has resulted in an attractive yet practical shelter that will provide a blueprint for future waiting areas.”
